    DOT regs (393.11) state that straight trucks are NOT required to have the same rear door markings as trailers.
    However, Landstar does want/require the top, rear doors to have the "L" markings.
    According to Compliance, they want uniformity with the fleet.

    Be safe

    Stoops Specialty Trucks in Fort Wayne has started doing this on all of their boxes to avoid this issue.

    There is a proposed rule making to change this law.

      It's a good idea to have it, whether regulation requires it or not.
